A unique look into the life of an extraordinary girl

Hawaii

on December 22, 2013

I haven’t been posting  much… But now I have brand new experience to share!! We were in Hawaii on the island Oahu, and had a blast! I had been to Kona before but but I don’t remember much. We had to move around a lot but we got to see different parts of the island that way. Instead of me listing what we did every day, I’ll tell you my favorite things that we did.

We went up to the North Shore and found this little lava-rock protected area. We climbed in the rocks and when the tide comes in we jumped off, into the surf. So fun!!!

Driving back from the North Shore, we stopped at…. The Dole Plantation! We went to the maze they have there. It’s the world’s largest maze, has 2.34 miles of pathway, and made of more than  1,000 local Hawaiian plants. We also went on a plantation  train called the Pineapple Express, and saw lots of pineapple growing in huge fields. The last thing we did was go in a Plantation Garden  with all these cool plants. We saw lots of Birds Of Paradise, Koi in ponds, and lots of Ti Leaves. We also had lunch there and the Dole Whip is really good!

A few days later, we moved back to Waikiki and one day we walked to the Honolulu Zoo. We saw  White Handed Gibbon and the Siamang Gibbon who were howling a lot! I asked a zoo keeper if they normally do this. She said that the howling or singing is normal and that what they were doing is singing a territorial song.  The White Handed Gibbons would usually start and then the Siamang Gibbons  would then follow.

One of my MOST favorite days was the day we went to Pearl Harbor. We went to the USS Arizona Memorial built over the old glorious ship that sunk in World War II. If you look closely, you can still see oil leaking  out of the ship. We also went on an audio tour of the USS Bowfin Submarine!

Lastly, we saw the Vans Triple Crown Of Surfing at one of the beaches in Halewa.
